Seals for fold outs

I have a 2006 Fleetwood Orbit 190XP

The seal (attached to the camper) that seals the opening when the fold out is shut is toast.

I have tried Fleetwood directly and Pelland Enterprises, neither can help.

Any suggestions?

I am even considering just replacing it with ANY seal that will fit do the job so I would be interested in any source for seals you might know of.

Thank you in advance!

Norm

Do the seals appear to be glued on, or they attached with a clip or something where you have to get something to match.

These are the images I was sharing with the potential suppliers to help communicate:

Wow! i've never seen D-seals that bad.

i've heard some hybrid owners find D-seals at a auto body parts supply place.
i think that bunk door seals are similar to D-seals used for automotive applications.

Hey Thanks Bikendan! Just knowing they are called D-Seals I have already found more than a couple of sources. Surprising how difficult the other 2 companies were making this!

My 2005 Aerolite hybrid had the same seals. And they looked about the same condition when I sold it back in Feb of 2012. But they didn't leak. Wonder if you called a Aerolite dealer (Thor/Dutchman/Aerolite) and see if they can at least head you in the right direction.

What if you added a "stick on seal" to the door lip edge.

Hey Super- I have tried Fleetwood and feel I would have been better off talking to the wheels on my RV.

I have 5 samples coming in from Pelland and will post results when I pick one to assist others and save them weeks of what I have gone through.

The biggest bummer seems to be a complete lack of white, it will have to be black, but I will live with it!

Thanks for the advice,

Norm

My "white seal" looked exactly like you're pictured above on my old 2005 hybrid. When we bought our 2013 hybrid we had some water leakage when we traveled in the rain. They added a small glue on seal to the lip of the bunk door. That has stopped any water from getting in during travel.

FOUND!

Pelland Enterprises:

Pelland Enterprises Motor Home Products - RV Windows

Only problem is that it is black, not white. However, since less than half of it will be seen I am okay with that. Could not find white anywhere!
